Theatre must legitimize its existence, get involved in society and be committed to reaching out to people. There are many ways to do this, and such involvement can lead to the most diverse of theatrical approaches. However, I also see the danger that theatre’s dedication to things such as education, social welfare, state aid and other socially relevant topics could have a deteriorating effect on its creative environment. In actuality, the true impulses are fear, dread, a thirst for revenge, ambition, rage, delusions of grandeur, narrow-mindedness, sentimentality, self-pity, hate, lust, sorrow, shock, desperation. No one is interesting in financing these types of impulses. Yet we should still be mindful of them, as they are the concepts that people will have to face and share in the future.
